Caia's Kitty, 2nd Go

This is actually the second time I've tried to paint this kittycat! In September my friend Caia had to say goodbye to her beloved cat. I know how heartbreaking that is because last spring we had to put our dog down. So, I tried to paint a little memorial for her, but the strangest thing happened! Years ago I had a little grey tabby and my painting kept morphing into her every time I let my guard down! Back story - I've always felt guilty about that cat because I stopped paying much attention to her after our kids were born and then she died all alone when I was out of town. Cats are mysterious. Maybe she was trying to tell me she was still with me... and she forgives me. Well, I'd like to think that.
